Us girls always need accessories.
But what happens when you have a new outfit but not the right earrings and you need to be ready ASAP? Well, you go to your office and build yourself a pair of pretty little things
This instructable will show you how to create a simple yet gorgeous pair of earrings using stuff from the office supply store or even things you already have. You will obtain a bold geometric pattern
Step 1: The things you need
Materials you need:
- left over piece of cardboard or craft paper
- 10 blue push pins
- 8 yellow push pins
- Left over fabric, preferably in a matching color
- Earring wires: I used old earrings that'd lost their match
- Needle nose pliers
- Cutting pliers
- hot glue gun
Note: The amount of push-pins needed depends on the size you want to make the earrings
Step 2: Design the pattern
I wanted to create a bold geometric pattern, so the first thing to do is cut 2 cardboard squares, around 3x3 cm (this doesn't have to be accurate, since you will cut it at the end)
The earrings will have a "checkers panel" pattern. I suggest you first layout the push-pins in the cardboard and after you are happy with the arrangement pull them out and glue them back.
In one of the cardboard pieces start pin pushing:
First row : a blue push-pin, then a yellow, then a blue. Make sure they overlap a little so you also get the feeling of volume
Build the second row, but this time start with a yellow push-pin. follow by blue, then yellow.
The third row starts with a blue, then yellow then blue.
Then do this on the other cardboard piece
